What’s Under Scarlett’s Needle?

So, this weekend I spent a considerable amount of time creating paper crafts.  Many of you know me from all of my card making and scrapbooking projects.  On Sunday, I opted to switch gears and pull out a fabric collection from Moda called Bee Joyful.  I wanted to cut a new quilt pattern using this beautiful collection.  I just adore the delightful fabric with the honeybees and honeycomb images featured on it!

I decided to create my quilt using the Easy Half-Hexagon Quilt Pattern by Missouri Star Quilt company.  I just love all of their quilt ideas and tutorials!  They make it so easy to do.  Being that I am still learning a lot about quilting,  I need all the easy I can get!  Trust me!

Anyway, I managed to get all of my hexagons cut and placed them how I wanted them to appear to make the panel.  Believe me, that took the longest and was the hardest part so far!!  I had 14 rows of 6 half-hexagons.  Afterward, I sewed each row together.  This is how it looked before I completed sewing the last two rows together.  The rows were so long they actually hung off the side of my sewing table.

My next step is to sew the 14 rows together to make one panel and then on to adding the inner and outer borders, backing, and binding.  I am so excited about this quilt and can’t wait to see the finished product!  Once completed and quilted, I will share with you again.

I have to say that I just love being able to sit and sew with my Janome 14000 machine!  She is nicknamed Scarlett (as many of my quilting friends already know) as she is certainly a Southern gal!  Creating is such a joy to me; and it is always exciting to have something under a sewing needle!

So, what’s under your needle or on your craft table?  I would love to hear what you are working on.

Happy crafting!
